We’re Targeted
The Journal is blessed to be network broadcast, in High Definition in the United States’ Number One Outdoor Marketplace, (MI. OH. IN. IL, WI) the Upper Midwest. With 6.5 million men, women and children who hunt and or fish each year in the Great Lakes Region, this area is also the number one out-door commerce area in the Nation. Giving your advertising dollars the additional advantage of marketing to those consumers most likely to frequent your establishment and/or purchase your products.
We’re Known
Because of our 16+ years of audience development and rigorous public appearance schedule. We have readily identified hosts in Kyle and Tina "Miss T" Randall, as well as program regulars that appeal to all age demographics. This gives us, and you, not only name recognition, but very real credibility in the market place.
We’re Affordable
We have entry level; CC, sponsor packages available for less than two thousand dollars per quarter. With Nielsen coverage numbers that far exceed national averages, unchallenged programing in prime time and a base in the largest out-door, recreation market in the world. We don’t think you could find a better advertising opportunity for your product or service, anywhere!
